If you’re planning a sales or marketing campaign to financial intermediaries in the UK it is essential that you use an up-to-date and comprehensive database to reach your target audience. Data erodes quickly as people change jobs, move offices, gain specialisms & qualifications and alter their charging structures. If you don’t have access to the latest information then you’ll potentially be wasting a sizeable portion of your marketing spend on poorly targeted campaigns.

campaignmanagement

If you use email campaigns and direct mail to communicate with customers, prospects or intermediaries, we can help you to streamline your campaigns and mailings.

Perhaps you use direct mail to send out statutory mailings to customers or perhaps you incorporate it as part of your marketing strategy. Whilst direct mail is a common method of communicating with the pubic and providing important information, managing the process is a time consuming task and it is easy to incur unnecessary expense. It can be more efficient and cost-effective to outsource activities.

Our campaign management service covers everything from advising you on the nature and timing of your campaign to tracking the responses generated, helping you to maximise your return on investment from marketing. Our account management service team will organise all aspects of your mailing for you from start to finish.

The first stage of any campaign, whether on or offline, is to identify the target audience. Using our advanced analysis software we can help you choose the most relevant consumers or IFAs for your particular product. This may be based on distance from a selected location, previous buying behaviour or other profiling variables such as:

Planning regional sales seminars to your best prospects based on drive-time to selected venues.
Identify the predicted optimum ROI for any marketing activity based on proven economic models.

We are also able to provide in-depth analysis on the responses received from any mailing or email campaign allowing you to pinpoint the most successful aspects of your marketing activity, and the profile of consumers most likely to respond to further marketing campaigns.
